A visit to the Oceanarium, designed by the American architect, Peter Chermayeff poses a constant challenge to our knowledge, at all levels. Inhabited by 15.000 animals and plants representing over 450 different species, in 30 tanks containing more than 7.000 m3 of seawater, and reconstituting various of the oceans' ecosystems, the Oceanarium offers visitors a unique and enchanting experience.
Alternate between the level of the land the underwater level, and find a re-creation of four specific habitats: the rocky coasts of the North Atlantic, the coastline of the Antarctic, the Kelp forest of the Pacific and the coral reefs of the Indian Ocean.
